“Jingle & Mingle”
For the third consecutive year, the C2 Style-Neiman Marcus Walnut Creek Holiday Event was a celebration…and this year was the best ever! Clients & friends enjoyed sips and snacks while viewing a private fashion show addressing the question “what should I wear this holiday (and resort) season?” Gift ideas helped everyone decide what to check off their gift lists. Finally, with Laura Mercier make-up artists touching up lips & eyes, guests were definitely in “princess-mode”.
Jetting off to an exotic vacation this holiday season? If you’re spending the holidays in Mexico, Hawaii or cruising the Caribbean, feeling relaxed and looking effortlessly chic will guarantee a “successful” getaway. Here are a few of my favorite resort fashion finds:
Watching films by day, attending parties by night is a tough job, and I’m in! As I packed (and I mean PACKED) my car for the 5-day festival, my strategy was to bring fun, comfortable and appropriate outfits for all the events I would be attending. Full disclosure: I brought 2 leather jackets, 6 slacks, a bunch of sweaters & tops, 7 party looks and 13 pairs of shoes! I think I may have over-packed a little.
The following are some of my favorite looks (on me AND others) from the week’s events:
Margo has been a C2 Style client since 2003. This is her story:
“Ok, so packing freaks me out. It literally stresses me out more than any other part of the trip. I worry about what I’m going to take on a vacation weeks before the actual event. I stand looking in my closet without knowing where to begin. I figure I will have to buy a new suitcase to accommodate all that I’m going to have to take with me for my 3 week trip to Europe. Then, I remembered…Carolyn!!!
Protecting the planet and looking chic are not exclusive endeavors. As women are becoming increasingly aware of their carbon footprint and animal cruelty, eco-friendly fashion is a trend that’s here to stay.
